I remember seeing JGB show at Irvine, and a couple (younger than me ) next to us were decked out to the 9s in hippie gear . But they talked throughout the Robert Hunter set ! Some Dead heads !
At the end Frank Zappa's "Burnt Weenie Sandwich , before the last track, he inserts a bit from a live show, in which someone is yelling something (maybe antimilitary ?), and Zappa responds, "Everyone in this room is wearing a uniform, and don't kid your self "
There is much I loved about Deadheads, but the author of this article sees them as many others have , and there is more than a little truth in it .
